Newest Apple Watch amps up health features with heartbeat upgrade

Newest Apple Watch amps up health features with heartbeat upgrade

Apple is reportedly collaborating with Boston-based telemedicine vendor American Well and a group of clinicians at Stanford (Calif.) University to test whether its smartwatch's heart rate sensor can be used to detect heart rhythm abnormalities, according to CNBC. That means you can listen to Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, or other streaming music services without having your handset with you.

During the event, Williams said Apple Watch can now also detect arrhythmia, an abnormal heart rhythm, and he said that Apple Watch is looking to track atrial fibrillation, a type of serious arrhythmia. EE is the sole carrier confirmed for the United Kingdom, though Apple said more are coming.

"We started working on the Apple Watch several years ago, and one goal was performing some measurements of your health that people were not measuring, at least continually". A rise in heart rate could be caused by such things as pregnancy, caffeine, or anxiety, in addition to more serious issues.

Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) is CNA Financial Corp's 9th Largest Position
LeJeune Puetz Investment Counsel LLC bought a new position in Microsoft Corporation in the 4th quarter worth $2,828,000. Insider data is useful because it can reveal what a company's executives and largest shareholders feel about a stock.

Williams didn't elaborate on the circumstances in which people found their heart rates rising unexpectedly. (You want a lower resting rate, and a higher recovery rate).

During an Apple event in Cupertino, California today, Apple introduced its new Apple Watch Series 3 with enhanced health and fitness enhancements. That information could be helpful for doctors in diagnosing the condition. This is the new custom W2 chip for the wireless and Apple claims 85 percent faster Wi-Fi with 50 percent more power efficient. This is particularly helpful for those with an irregular heart beat or who may not know they have one. With time, Topol says, "they are going to be pretty darn accurate".
